'From Dust' (ALL) - New Screens

by Rainier on March 17, 2011 @ 4:06 a.m. PDT

From Dust is set in an extreme version of Planet Earth where nature unleashes her power in a much more violent way than what we are used to. Tsunamis, earthquakes, floods, wildfires, volcanic eruptions are what the days are made of for the people of Dust. In this kind of God game, users will play with powers to manipulate the world around them.

Ground, water, lava, fire, plants and trees -model the world like a child playing sand castles on the beach. With such powers, players will help their people resist, expand and migrate so they can accomplish their quest to find a safe place.

Project Dust is based on a technological breakthrough which allows us to have a world that’s entirely dynamic. Players will be able to manipulate ground, water, vegetation, lava as if playing sandcastles on the beach. Breaching a lake open, digging craters, flooding valleys… And all this is simulation, not just graphics visualization.

The technology behind the game is at the top of what can be done on today’s computer architecture.
